[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks closed lower on Tuesday as investors locked in profits following declines in American shares, which came under pressure from weak US data and trade worries.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index fell 0.64 per cent, or 149.69 points, to 23,379.81, while the broader Topix index was down 0.45 per cent, or 7.76 points, at 1,706.73.
